TriusMalarky on Tuvasa Enchantress

1 week ago

Skycloud Expanse , Mystic Gate , a turn one green source and mana dorks are amazing in Tuvasa.

Playing the turn one Llanowar Elves into a turn two Tuvasa feels so good and is just so powerful. Even though they aren't enchantments, in my experience the dorks allowed me to draw that one extra card by having Tuvasa in play a turn earlier anyways.

Also, I like to use cards like Curiosity , Curious Obsession , Keen Sense , Sixth Sense , Snake Umbra and Ophidian Eye . Tack those onto Tuvasa to draw tons, or just slap it onto one of the mana dorks for some card draw.

Other dorks for your consideration: Elvish Mystic , Avacyn's Pilgrim , Fyndhorn Elves , and Birds of Paradise and Noble Hierarch if you have the budget.

Nice deck! Have you thought about adding Curiosity , Ophidian Eye or Tandem Lookout ? any of those three together with your commander can make you win the game in a single play, since every time that you draw a card you can make 1 damage to your opponent, making you draw another card and repeating that will trigger your commander to make damage again, making you go until you kill your oponents or you end without deck XD

Hey, nice start on a budget.

When you add Pathways and other DFC cards that have lands on the backside you only add the front side of the card to your decklist. Pathways only count as one land in the manabase; don't add both sides, only one such as Riverglide Pathway  Flip, but not Lavaglide Pathway. Replace the extra Pathways in the manabase with a few more basic lands. Sejiri Shelter  Flip has a land on the backside, but you don't add Sejiri Glacier to the manabase. These DFC acts as extra lands as an addition to the total lands in the deck. If you have 34 total lands then Sejiri Shelter  Flip can be a 35th land.

Sol Ring, Command Tower and Path of Ancestry are three budget staples of Commander to consider adding. Trinket Mage can tutor for Bag of Holding or Elixir of Immortality, important cards to have more access too. Tandem Lookout can change who it's soulbond too and when your Commander has an effect that can do damage to each opponent then Lookout can be a repeatable draw source to draw a lot of cards.

With as little as 40 cards in your library Brallin or Glint-Horn Buccaneer can win you the game at your Cleanup step. If either is soulbond to Lookout or enchanted with Curiosity or Ophidian Eye, you have 8 or more cards in hand and have no effect that's no max hand size. At your Cleanup step you have to discard down to 7 cards in hand and you don't leave the Cleanup step until you have exactly 7 cards in hand, but this combo doesn't let you have 7 cards in hand thus you don't leave the Cleanup step. When you discard it triggers Ballin who then triggers to draw, you keep drawing and discarding your entire library until your opponents are dead or until you run out of cards.

Drift of Phantasms transmute is a budget way to tutor for Tandem Lookout, Ophidian Eye, Glint-Horn Buccaneer or any other 3 CMC card in your library and Transmute is a discard effect.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Lavaglide Pathway
  • Pillarverge Pathway
  • Sejiri Glacier
  • Silundi Isle
  • Star Compass
  • Mercurial Chemister
  • Herald of the Forgotten
  • Boon of the Wish-Giver
  • Tormenting Voice

Good luck with your deck.

Mice deck. I'd swap some of your mana rocks for signets instead. You got 3 signets available, so remove Mana Geode, Prismatic Lens and Mind Stone (you won't need the draw ability in this deck). No Sol Ring?

Lightning Greaves would be far better than Whispersilk Cloak.

Have you considered Jace Beleren? Anvil of Bogardan and Font of Mythos are great choices to increase the draw power of the deck.

Jace's Archivist is another wheel on legs. Kederekt Parasite is another Underworld Dreams. Seizan, Perverter of Truth is another Mine. All of them creatures that can help you fasten the game.

Ophidian Eye is yet another Curiosity while Sigil of Sleep works greatly as spot removal and Vampiric Bite would be quite nice if you find yourself low on life.

Winds of Change is another effective wheel at a very low cost that, has a plus, doesn't let your opponents get back the cards they already discarded. No drawback there. :)

Sultai_Sir on Niv still to slow...

Hey man, I've got some suggestions:

Talisman of Creativity: Another ramp spell, and taps for colorless if you need it to.

Keep Watch: Absolutely ridiculous card, often draws you 5+ cards at least, and I once drew 24 cards. Brilliant.

Ophidian Eye: I know it's in your maybeboard, but it's still a combo with Niv-Mizzet.

Windfall: Draw ALL the cards.

Whirlpool Warrior: Basically a personal double Windfall, if you're playing your deck right, you should always have the most cards.

Jace's Archivist: Man, the Windfalls keep on coming! This one's one you can do every turn, which is just pure value, plus it disrupts your opponent's gameplan when you're wheeling every turn.

AEtherize/AEtherspouts: Just say no to any deck that's attacking. Hint: most decks.

Anyways, hope this helps, and as always, Happy Tapping!

Ophidian Eye as a backup for Curiosity.

Scroll Rack is 100% value in a deck like this.

Cyclonic Rift, Mystic Remora, Rhystic Study

Generally I think you need to get rid of some of your higher CMC spells and replace them with some more generally useable spells.

I would get rid of Bloodfire Mentor, Pyroceratops (Replace with Sprite Dragon if that's something you want)

There's a lot you can do here, but it largely comes down to budgetary constraints.
